Because of low blood supply, there is a blood drive Saturday, August 22, from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm at Hughes Spring Masonic Lodge, 406 County Rd 1577, Hughes Springs.
They test all donations for the COVID-19 antibody to identify potential convalescent plasma donors for patients fighting the COVID-19 illness. This test will show if you have had COVID-19 in the past, not that you currently have the virus. We DO NOT use a nose swab. We draw a small tube of blood during the donation process. We send the results to your email address within two weeks of donating blood.
